Subtropical storm strikes Washington
Saturday, November 4, 2006
It formed from an extratropical storm around October 30 in the Central Pacific and became subtropical on November 1, and was recognized as "Storm 91C" by the U.S. Navy. The storm was out of the National Hurricane Center (NHC) and the Central Pacific Hurricane Center's (CPHC) areas of responsibility, and therefore didn't receive a name. In addition, the CPHC doesn't issue advisories on subtropical storms.
The cyclone moved into the East Pacific and organized into a hurricane-like system with winds up to 60 mph.
The storm began to lose convection and weaken, but managed to make it to Washington and British Columbia as a 40 mph storm with gusts up to 60 mph.
Heavy rain and high winds were brought along the northern Pacific coast of the United States.
